Macbeth, Op.23 (Strauss, Richard)
It is unlikely that this work is public domain in the EU, or in any country where the copyright term is life-plus-70 years. However, it is in the public domain in Canada (where IMSLP is hosted) and other countries where the term is life-plus-50 years (like China, Japan, Korea and many others worldwide). As this work was first published before 1923 or failed to meet notice or renewal requirements to secure statutory copyright, it is almost certainly public domain in the USA as well.

*"Copyright assigned 1932 to C.F. Peters, Musikverlag. © renewed 1960 C.F. Peters." This is a bogus attempt at a copyright claim for USA.
